Channeling Failure

Published February 3, 2015 in Programming

Go’s concurrency primitives make it easy to build highly concurrent systems, however any distributed system operating at scale will experience failures. This is especially important in microservice architectures where requests may traverse many systems initiating remote calls, and failures of a single component may cascade through several more.

In this talk we look at a number of common patterns from simple usage of channels to control and throttle concurrency, to more complex patterns such as the CircuitBreaker which can be used to prevent cascading failures; increasing the reliability of our systems.
